Richard Avedon’s Fantastic Fable

The late American photographer Richard Avedon will always be remembered for revolutionizing fashion photography and for pushing its boundaries. Back in November 1995, The New Yorker devoted a large portion of their magazine to Avedon's work. It was a timeless fable involving two characters, Mr. & Mrs. Comfort, and their tumultuous love affair. Many believed that this reflected Avedon's disillusionment with contemporary fashion, reducing it to a dance with death.

Beautifully staged and emotionally charged, the photo essay will live on as one of greatest of all time.
